For our grand daughter's seventh birthday card I used a template for a 3D framed card from Cardmaking Paradise. The Marianne die for the cupcake and candles was a bargain from August's Stamperama. Thank you to my Cardmaking Paradise forum friend for pointing me in its direction (or should that be die - rection!).
